How often do you say to yourself, “That is what I should be doing for a living.” ? For Breann Chiero and Christian Medice, co-founders of the Hungry Hipsters, a popular Instagram site with over 130,000 followers, they have found a way to turn their love of food, fashion and travel into part of their livelihood. Pretty cool, huh? “It’s a weird and twisted world,” Chiero,29, said of building the Instagram account.
When a graffiti tagger strikes—such as the two who tagged the Gilroy Dispatch office around 5 pm on Tuesday with a crude pink stamp—grime fighters with the Gilroy Wipe Out Watch Anti-Graffiti Program spring into action to erase what is left behind on public or private property. “I’ve been fighting grime for about five years now,” said Cindy Parks, a property manager with Bay Sierra Properties, who was on the scene in less than half-an-hour after she was called.
A landscaping contractor who was passed over for work around Gilroy has told the city council it shouldn’t hire a company that doesn’t check the immigration status of its employees.Mike Carter, a representative from BrightView LLC, which had worked in the city for five years, took exception with the hiring practices of the soon-to-be new contractors in regards to immigration status.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
